North Port, FL, USA (October 10, 2014) — Carolyna Lovely’s newest release “I Can Give You Love” is a haunting solo performance, an Americana Gem – “I Can Give You Love” is the love letter of a woman, entirely enamored, but with little else to give her Great Love this holiday season – Sultry, feminine, loving, heartwarming…

Greg Shirley Set To Release “Hillbilly Girl” on October 14

Country Singer Greg Shirley Set to Release Debut Single and Accompanying Video for “Hillbilly Girl,” on October 14 from Garage Door Records.

Chattanooga, TN, USA (October 7, 2014) — Chattanooga-based label Garage Door Records announces an October 14 release and radio add date for “Hillbilly Girl,” the debut single from country music singer Greg Shirley, along with its accompanying video. The new single, written by Jason Blaine McEwen and Willie Mack, precedes the release of his first album, Raised on the Run, which will street in late winter, 2015, and was produced by T.W. Cargile and Greg Shirley.

The “Hillbilly Girl” video was directed by Lance Goodman for The Beauty of Music Productions and perfectly captures the upbeat, fun-loving spirit of the new single.

Supporting Alabama-based Greg Shirley on his debut is a virtual “who’s-who” of Nashville players. Jim Moose Brown, a veteran multi-instrumentalist who has lent his talents to recordings from Waylon Jennings, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, and Bob Seger, plays keys. Drummer Eddie Bayers has earned the prestigious Academy of Country Music Drummer of the Year award for eight years straight. Bassist Kevin “Swine” Grantt’s resume includes work for Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Colt Ford, and Willie Nelson.

Co-producer and engineer T.W. Cargile recorded Greg’s vocals at Jamey Johnson’s Big Assed Studio in Nashville. The co-producer of Johnson’s Grammy-nominated “In Color,” Cargile’s track record with Alabama-based songwriters is undisputed.

In addition to Greg’s own compositions, the forthcoming album includes contributions from some of Nashville’s most celebrated songwriters, notably Bernie Nelson and Chris Wallin. Kenny Chesney, Chris LeDoux, and Randy Travis have all taken Nelson’s songs to the top of the charts, and the smash, “Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind,” earned him Million Airplay status in 2002. Wallin has enjoyed his share of chart success as well: his recent “Something to Be Proud Of” kept Montgomery Gentry at number one for weeks. His songs have appeared on albums by everyone from Trace Adkins to Confederate Railroad and Diamond Rio.
